Non-Surgical Catheterization Techniques

Many research projects and teaching protocols require the use of short-term, non-surgically-implanted catheters. Techniques associated with percutaneous catheter insertion can be easily learned with hands-on training. Participants in this workshop will be instructed on:

  • Selecting the appropriate catheter for the procedure and species of animal
  • Aseptic techniques for insertion of and securing the catheters
  • Care and maintenance of the catheters after they have been placed percutaneously
